before. last time in 1995. could it happen? rich edson. we have the fiscal cliff deal. the debt ceiling pushed back and the continuing resolution, right? >> this is because of the debt ceiling in relation to this calendar. the debt ceiling increase is approved in the senate next couple days. that pushes the debt ceiling to may 18th. the back end of number of cliffs upcoming in the calendar. look here at the government deadlines the congress and white house are facing right now. first, march 1st are the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester. they begin to hit the federal budget. that is something that takes place over the course of the year and is gradual. march 27th, that is when government spending runs out. or a large chunk of it. if there is no agreement on that, that could shut down the federal government. you're looking at debt ceiling all the way on may 18th. congressional aides saying treasury is telling them pause of extraordinary measures they can use, this pushes the debt ceiling day back to sometime this summer perhaps if this is a bill that clears congress and the s
the debt ceiling for the next four months. in the bill, an interesting provision that with holds member's pay if they fail to pass a budget by april 15th. >>> president obama's popularity is on the rise. a "washington post" poll found his favorability rating at 60%. that's a three-year high. 37% had an unfavorable view. >>> david visitor is dismissing a bipartisan proposal on immigration reform. and vitter went after florida senator marco rubio calling him amazingly naive to believe the plan would not amount to amnesty. >>> lamar alexander of tennessee talked to chuck todd on "the daily rundown" about gun control and video games. take a listen. >> i think video games is a bigger problem than guns because video games affect people. but the first amendment limits what we can do about video games. the second amendment to the constitution limits what we can do about guns. >>> senator john mccain appeared at a breakfast in washington where he told a joke about himself and the low approval ratings of his colleagues. >> a guy ran up in the airport and say anybody tell you look like john mccain
to raise the debt ceiling for the next few months. in the bill, an interesting provision that would hold the senators' pay if they failed by february 15th. >> the midwest is trying to dig out. what else you got? and there's more. >> wait till you see the windchills in north dakota this morning. ugly. let's start with the bad weather. over 500 reports of severe weather over the last 48 hours. now the high winds and maybe even a quick rumble of thunder is trying to roll through new jersey and head up into new england. the storms are flying, that's the good news. baltimore, maryland, washington, d.c., you're done with the heavier rains. you'll see the line through new jersey, it's heading right over top of new york city and up into connecticut and the hudson valley. this is that enhanced line here as it moves to the north. and this is just a huge system, and we're going to continue to see the winds cranking for the next 24 to 48 hours over the eastern seaboard. winds are pretty light, but boston, wind gusts of 49, hartford, 41. the windchill in roland, north dakota is minus 49. i know they
together to bring something forward. >> where were these debates during the debt ceiling? i feel there are no relationships across the aisle. this is, they shouldn't do things so -- >> some relationships in congress -- >> they're doing things so fast, this is setting an excellent precedent for the rest of the agenda. >> the latino voteler flee you. >> thank you. >> in you don't resolve this and take, say a year, the next three years to court that latino voter you'll be in a similar position. >> there's no doubt republicans have not done a good job communicating to latino voters and i will say that, but let me say this, the thing that republicans have to do is seize upon this opportunity to get something done, to show the country that we can work together in a bipartisan fashion, that is what's happening. if we want to see it on the debt ceiling it starts by these things where we can agree, where we can move things forward and as mary said which was a good point, dear, that the president can make the tone, either he can create a battle on this or he can try to bring people togethe
is expected to vote this afternoon on a bill to suspend the debt ceiling for three months, following the house. this would allow more house for debate on the fiscal issues we're facing. the senate version includes several republican amendments, though, including matching spending cuts for every dollar increase in the debt ceiling. those amendments expected to be defeated. the bill won't technically raise the debt ceiling, but it will suspend it until may 19th when it will be raised by the amount that the treasury borrows in the interim. that's how it's going to work. and markets, as we've been talking about on a tear this month with the dow having its best january in decades. but will yesterday's surprising drop in gdp reign in the bulls, it says here? let's get a read on the state of the economy. at least it wasn't a -- that kind of rein. there's three of them. anyway, joining us for the next hour is bob bruska. that's fao -- >> no. you cannot. >> fao economics. as becky said at the top, things are going to go really well or the market is going to have an '87 crash. >> i like the binary outlo
for the federal government's ability to borrow new money. the measure will suspend the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling until the middle of may. the bill also requires members of the house and senate to pass a budget by mid-april or risk having their own pay withheld. >>> the dow's bounce above 14,000 didn't last long. worry about europe dragged the market down yesterday, the biggest losses of the year. the dow was down 129. the nasdaq lost 48. in the previous session, the dow had hit its highest level in years. >>> the u.s. government plans to file a civil lawsuit against the ratings agency standard & poor's. the suit accuses the firm of giving high ratings to risky mortgage bond and led to the 2008 financial crisis. s&p says the suit is without merit. >>> medical marijuana has been legal in california since 1996. but now some cities are banning the dispensaries. a ruling will soon determine how far state law can go to protect their right to do business. the state supreme court will hear arguments today on whether local governments can ban them. right now a
the debt ceiling. if republicans had gone into this issue and said they would not raise the debt ceiling unless they got cuts, there would have lost that the raid at the end. big loss that debate. john boehner and paul rand did a great job together. you cannot govern from that office, you but you have to be very careful about high-profile last-minute negotiations. i've worked in the white house and three administrations. the president has a tremendous institutional advantage in these kinds of fights. what republicans have to do is avoid these fights, the straps that they are laying. provide an alternative through passing legislation, just to show this is how they would govern if they had the powers of the presidency and the senate. and be careful. there are some rough edges. host: some are not strategy as far as moving the debt ceiling ahead. guest: if they had gone ahead with it, it would have been politically cataclysmic. it was the worst percival -- worst possible ground to make their point. president obama 1. i think it's absolutely crucial for the future of the country that you cann
. >> well, the president just signed the bill that raises the debt ceiling. so in an age where these fiscal fights are, they're the same, they're ongoing, they can be insecendiary incendiary, we're always talking about a government shutdown of one kind or another, where does this leave us? >> it leaves us with a bunch of people who just fought the first fight, and the senate democrats are going to annapolis today and tomorrow to try to figure out, how do we move forward? how do we move forward with a budget? how do we move forward on funding the government? both of those things need to be done by april 15th. >> because they have taken some hits. and do they really want to give republicans anymore ammunition? >> that's why they've said, we're going to do a budget. and they were happy to sign the increase, meant they had a deadline of april 15th, where they don't get paid, and they have to get a budget done. >> always a good incentive there. >> so democrats understand that they need that, but this is going to be a partisan document by and large, saying, here's our spending priorities. democra
'm waiting for the spring. >> what's happening in this spring? >> the sequester, next debt ceiling debate, a number of items that might send the market 10% lower. >> that's true but i have too much money to think about policy and not enough thinking about the fundamentals. >> 90% of hedge funds conform the market. the stock market was up 7% and the hedge funds averaging 8% or show. lot of that average performance came from worrying about these speed bumps. >> you can argue they were hedged. >> that might be. >> if you and andrew have never seen a period 800 on the dow, then 1200, then 3200, then 4200, then 6200, that was unbelievable to watch for 20 years. if you've never seen that, you have no input or experience on how that feels or work out, right? that would be a whole new dynamic -- >> i wasn't alive. >> i know. when that gets gone -- >> there's not enough research to support that point, the way people experience things in 20s and 30s it's with them their whole lives. joe and i think the bull market is normal and you guys think they're abnormal. >> if you haven't been through that --
to your vest. >> bill: so you are saying when the congress extends the debt ceiling for example for only three months or when they don't pass a budget or kick the sequester can down the road all of this has -- >> -- a negative effect upon people's ability to plan and think through what they are going to do. sequestration is very dangerous because it effects not just civilian jobs it affects the all if i of our military and having people able to respond to a situation at anytime. if they were going to make the cuts -- make the cuts then so people know what to do. don't keep kicking the can down the road. i would think this is not the time to make those cuts. but the -- the inability of congress to act is is just devastating to all of us trying to make our way through this country. >> bill: yeah, and we'll be back into that soup it looks like in just a couple of weeks. your questions about the economy in general. we didn't get to the fact that the gdp fell. we'll get to that with the president tom buffenbarger of the machinists. your comments welcome at 866-55-press
, but things look good. we did not go over the fiscal cliff and we did not hit the debt ceiling. evidence is piling up. >> that's true. here is the thing that struck me about hagel hearings, it seemed at times that chuck hagel was surprised that these people were not happy with him. it's as if he did not read a newspaper in month. >> his response to the surge question. mccain is the biggest supporter of the surge, he led it. chuck hagel disagreed and mccain seems to be right. and hagel looked surprised by the question. in defense of molly's story and washington is getting better. that was not about dysfunction of washington, the two of them just do not like each other. that has nothing to do do with the broader things washington. the issue matrix is changing a bit. what we with saw in 2009 and 2010, when health care and economy were on the table, those are where the parties are fundamentally divided. that is going to be true. but the immigration, there's not the same divide with them. so it's not a polarizing issue with john kerry. part of the reason we are seeing less dysfunction -- on o
,000 to $80,000. a significant jump. washington raised the debt ceiling at least temporarily. home sales are up, home prices up 5.5% from a year ago. the economy is still growing at a relatively slow pace. the monthly jobs report due out friday is expected to show that the unemployment numbers have not budged. >>> now to a developing story overnight. a new doping scandal in sports. this time, major league baseball. officials are investigating a report in a florida newspaper that claims that yankees star alex rodriguez, nationals pitcher gio gonzalez, and four others were sold performance-enhancing drugs in the last four years by a clinic in florida. gonzalez and rodriguez have already issued statements denying links to the clinics. our sources at espn with saying the yankees are now trying to void the remainder of alex rodriguez's contract. >>> a new revelation in the dreamliner investigation. the plane has been grounded. we've learned boeing was told about repeated problems with the batteries months before one of them caught fire in boston. however, safety regular lay laters did not hav
overseas. your push right now is getting it back home. >> with the fiscal cliff and debt ceiling and trying to get bipartisan, but over here is something called poverty, 50 million americans and racial disparity and cities collapsing and the like. i'm going to make the case we should build america an urban infrastructural bank for the purpose of long-term loans. we do it in europe and japan. and no other country charges people to repatriate their money once they pay taxes in that country. but we do. but if we, in fact, took a portion of that money, part for research and development and part of it for an institutional bank, you could do what banks are not doing, and that's invest in these downtrodden areas of our country. >> gillian, we've been talking about it for years, trillions of dollars sitting on the sidelines not coming back to america. how do we get it back here? >> almost $2 trillion. you've got average household earnings down over the past four years, poverty is up. we need this money working in our economy. how do we get it here? >> absolutely. i think the reverend's idea is very
with the kind of spending reforms necessary to secure a longer extension of the debt ceiling. that extra time will give us a chance to break the democrats' other bad habit of leaving everything, literally everything until the last minute. but we can only do it if we get to work now and return to what we call around here the regular order. remember, regular order is how the senate is supposed to function. committees are supposed to be allowed to evaluate legislation. amendments are supposed to be considered, and the public is supposed to have a chance to scrutinize the proposals that are actually before us. look, i know that solving the debt challenge is not going to be easy. putting our country on a sustainable fiscal and economic path is going to require both parties committing to serious spending reforms. but this is a challenge we must overcome. by doing the hard work today, we can avoid a european-style catastrophe tomorrow. by reforming the functions of government that no longer make sense in 2013, we can do more than just control spending. we can encourage private sector growth and job
, and then the european credit crisis, as well as d.c.'s own fight over the debt ceiling. and then we were set to take off, all of a sudden we saw a big tumble in the stock markets and we saw job growth go back down again. i believe in august 2011 the initial report was zero net jobs. now they eventually revised that up to 100,000, but still an amemic growth rate. host: we continue our conversation regarding the 157,000 jobs added in january in the unemployment rate back now at 7.9% with patrick rice of politico. donald from statesville, north carolina is our next caller. donald is on our line for republicans. caller: hey, how you doing. i'm calling from statesville, north carolina, and we got some bad news here. freight liner who was in cleveland, north carolina, is going to lay off 750 employees. trim systems that supported them, they're closing their plant, 65 employees down to two. but here's my question, you know. when they do these job numbers, lowe's down here is going to hire 45,000 part time workers. does that count in the job numbers? or those are not even included? host: sorry about that donald
this fearmongering and screaming we did debt ceiling hostage crisis and all of that stuff. anyway, so not to discount your fear that we're going to be overtaken. >> well, yeah. that's paranormal. >> stephanie: we'll talk about this and much more as we continue. 19 minutes after the hour. it is "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: funny how. funny like she's a clown. like she's here to amuse you. it's the "the stephanie miller show." he was a comedy genious. addicted to the spotlight and living too close to the edge. of all the hours in all his days, these are the ones you'll never forget. ♪ bad, bad ♪ >> stephanie miller. ♪ baddest girl ♪ ♪ in the whole damn town ♪ ♪ badder than king kong ♪ ♪ meaner than a junkyard dog ♪ >> stephanie: it is "the stephanie miller show." welcome to it. 24 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12 the phone number toll free from anywhere. jake with the president carney. >> we created 2.2 million now with the revisions jobs in 2012. that means that we have been moving in the right direction when it comes to job creation. >> we're the jobs. where ar
that was brought by house republicans in passing their no budget, no pay provision as part of the debt ceiling bill that's now come over to the senate, it looks like the senate according to senator murray will now take up a budget. this is important because while republicans believe that spending is the problem not a lack of taxation, it's going to be a revealing exercise to see how this budget markup goes in committee and then, of course, on the floor. and it will be, i'm sure, a challenge for those who believe that more revenue is a solution as opposed to reining in spending to see how senate democrats produce 51 votes to pass a budget by the april 15th deadline. >> senate republicans just released a video that highlights the president's past statements when it comes to tackling the debt and his actual record when it comes to tackling the debt. and when out comes to reducing the debt as we would say out in the west, the president has been all hat and no cowboy. in other words, he's been all talk and no action. what we've seen over the past four years as trillion dollar deficits every single year,
and cliffs and taking us to the edge, shutting down the government, not paying our bills by raising the debt ceiling and that is no way to govern the country. i am hopeful that new labels will give us a way to govern the country where we start out at least bleeding in trusting the other members across the aisle have come to congress for the same reason we have. >> what can you do to bring about a more thoughtful, pragmatic congress? i want to throw out three ideas that are beyond the scope of what knolls febles has taken on. -- no labels has taken on. it was not perfect. we have 150 saved seats. they fear their primary. number two, money.incentives.the . and sentence. the creation of money is one of the threats to democracy. where incentivize to do crazy things. i give two examples last night. when the season the outrageous on the floor, when a republican member calls the president a liar, when a democratic member says the republican health care program is don't get sick and if you die, die quickly. those statements damage the fabric of our democracy and they raised $1 million in 24 hours. w
